BUTTERNUT SQUASH RAVIOLONI
This is what dreams are made of!
Zara’s most well-known pasta! These vibrant, striped Ravioloni (large ravioli) are naturally colored pillows of pasta stuffed with sweet butternut squash, creamy mascarpone and ricotta cheese. To draw out the sweetness of the squash, they’ve seasoned it with Autumn-inspired spices: cardamom, nutmeg and sage. Pair it with Zara’s Fresh Basil Pesto, or simply brown some butter with fresh sage and top it with some grated cheese for a quick meal that will nourish your body and soul!
STORAGE: Zara’s fresh pastas can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. They can also be frozen for up to 6 weeks.
COOKING INSTRUCTIONS: Bring a pot of generously salted water to a boil. Once boiling, add pasta and reduce to a medium simmer for 8-10 minutes, or until desired doneness. Remove with a slotted spoon or use a colander. Remember to reserve some of the pasta water to help thicken your sauce! If cooking from frozen, follow the instructions above, and add 1-2 minutes to the cook time.
